I'd love to get feedback on this outfit. Fit feels good, but I'm not always confident in my color and pattern coordination.

The Deets
Jacket: Adrian Jules
Shirt: Brooks Brothers
Tie: Vanda
Square: Brioni
Pants: Dockers shog[1].gif
Shoes: Ferragamo

I'm trying to find a trouser cut that is somewhat trim, but still fits my "generously proportioned" rear and thighs. I've got a pair of Epaulet Rudy's, but they're still a bit snug when I have the waist right.

Are you wearing 4 bracelets and crazy socks too? It's a lot to process. Where are you wearing this again? Maybe that will make me figure it out. I get what you're trying to do, I just hope you're not doing it in a CPA office or somewhere like that.

I get my fair share of suggestions and criticism, which i really like learning from, so please don't take this the wrong way Southernstyle, but I think you would benefit from recreating a movement from last fall in this thread. The "Tone it the fuck down day" movement. I just get the sense you have alot of cool pieces and toss them together in a unique way, but it really makes it hard to follow your outfit sometimes. I learned a while back that having some grounding elements (a solid tie, shirt, sock etc.) is better than having a pattern and color explosion everywhere. I would be interested to see where you are wearing this too. If it is just for fun, go for it I guess. But I can't help but think you could refine your unique taste and courage to wear interesting colors and styles into something more cohesive and exceptional!

Pour the criticism on, thats the only way anyone can learn. I like the majority of my pants with no break and am very aware and guilty of wearing some "funky shit." I work at a Southern haberdashery where I could wear 4 collars popped if I deemed it pleasing. I lack a decent amount of neckwear which stems from a low budget while I'm trying to buy more quality necessary pieces to my wardrobe (trousers, jackets, etc...) this leads to sometimes wearing some less than optimal tie choices. I'm 5' 6" which always leaves my narrow blade longer, I have tucked the narrow side into my trousers my last couple of outing and I'm sure you will find my fit today more "toned the fuck down." To answer your question I only wear two bracelets, one woven leather and one crocodile with my surname "IV" engraved on it. shog[1].gifbiggrin.gif I have Forest Green Belgians on to keep my sprezz engaged but to SF's satisfaction my pants do have a slight break today.

I too sometimes rock the longer blade with no shame. I think your look would translate better with better pics quality. I clearly see what you are trying to do.. and I get it... but I think it's taken out of context because of the background and your (no offense) shitty pic quality.

I would try to find a better spot to take your pics so the igents get it. I would check out Barims' pics for reference. He is great example.

Barima is a great example, but not of taking photographs of yourself since he does not do that.

Well, since you asked, I'll give you feedback - I'm not a fan though. The first thing is that the colors aren't really working. The jacket and trousers are too close too each other, as well as the shirt and the tie. I realize they're actually different colors - jacket looks charcoal, pants navy, while shirt light blue, tie black and white - but the color values are close enough that at the distance of your photo they don't really differentiate. Regarding this tie - if it's the one I think, which is the black and white shepard's check - I have this tie and like it, but I think it almost requires a white shirt. It's also quite a formal pattern, such that I wouldn't wear it with a casual patterned SC like this one. Finally, when I looked at the full length shot I at first thought the jacket was short - I don't think it is, but the bagginess and sagginess of the trousers makes the length of the jacket look off.
